Cross-Country Starts September 18th!
Our first Running Club practice will be Tuesday, September 18th at 8:15am at the school.
For those of you who are new to QEA and are curious, here’s the skinny:
Parent coaches, Glenn, Geoff and Amber coach Running Club. In the fall, the focus is Cross-Country. Practices are Tuesday and Thursday mornings, 8:15-8:55 AM.
Note: There will not be any QEA teachers present – each child must be accompanied by a parent. You can organize with other runners' parents to supervise your child. Neither the school nor the coaches are responsible for injuries, students left behind or unsupervised.
Parents are welcome to lace up and join us
· Who is it for? All QEA students.
· What do I need? Running shoes and water. Make sure children have dry socks/footwear (and sometimes clothes) to put on after practice.
· Where will we go and What will we do? We'll do trail running in the forest near the school and short distance interval training at the school or Chaldecott.
· Weather: Sprinkles and light showers? We will run. (Hard) Rain? We will not run. In between? In the case of iffy weather, we'll do our best to make a call re canceling by 7:50 AM on practice days.

If your child decides to join after this date, please complete the form at that time.

QEA also participates in the VSB Cross-Country program, which is comprised of a few mini-meets (2-3 schools competing) with the season culminating in a District-wide meet at Trout Lake on October 18th. It’s not a long season but it’s intense! Super fun too – our team works very hard and does very well at the meets.
Hope to see you all on the 18th! Stay tuned for more information about the VSB Meet schedule!
